Welcome to Pioneer Women's Basketball!
Our team plays a competitive schedule against regional community colleges at the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division III level and is a member of the MD JUCO Conference.
The 2013-14 women’s basketball team underwent a rebuilding year under new head coach Lionel Makell who was hired shortly before the start of the season. Coach Makell did a phenomenal job of quickly putting together an all-freshmen squad after last year’s team did not have enough student-athletes to complete the season. A season highlight was Lindsay Williams making the NJCAA D3 All-Region, first team.
The team’s final record of 3-21 does not reflect the effort that each of these women put forth in every game. They worked hard and fought the whole 40 minutes. Success can be measured in other ways than wins and losses so the coaches decided to choose a player after each game to receive the “Character Bear” to reward and recognize their hard work and progress. Each player added a decoration to the stuffed bear to pass along each week.
Coach Makell is hopeful that a good core of the team will decide to return next season.
